If you are interested in recent Chinese history this small museum is worthy of a visit.

Highly interesting as you follow the rise of the Communist Party to the dominant force it is today in China. The visit shouldn't take more than 2 hours but go early, remember the... read more

I mainly enjoyed watching the chinese tourists go through the museum explaining to their children the importance of the artifacts shown. I went through the museum in half an hour, since the explanations were not very elaborative. I would have gotten more out of it if more context was given concerning the different events during this time. A background story... More

You should visit it as it explains the start of a huge change in the recent history of China. The museum hasn't got very good explanations (probably the best is the photo gallery in the end of the visit, but, unfortunately, it has no English translations) but it is worth a visit.

All ccp museums are free! Thereafter proceed to xian tian di, French confession, walk to Fuxing park and proceed to Sinan mansion. There you will enjoy the old residence of sun Yat sen and shou en Kai. Free entrance also. Thereafter end your trip at Taikang road art center and tian zi fang.

I'm surprised that this place does not rate more highly on TA. Tucked away behind the fascinating Xintiandi area, in buildings which certainly look authentic and have been well maintained, is this little historical gem. It's very clear in its political biases, but if you look at the enigma which is China today (the world's second largest economy wrapped up... More

We first visited in Summer of 1992 - then it least it had the semblance of authenticity, 23 years later that veneer is gone, replaced by a redone "museum" that naturally and incorrectly gives Mao primacy in the diorama. A little glitz with marble staircases and a nice stop if you are going to spend (waste?) money in the XinTianDi... More

I quite enjoyed visiting here as I've just finished reading Mao Zedong's biography so I was able to recognise a lot of what was referred to. But if you're not aware of China's history over the last 100 years, much of what is said and shown here will be unfamiliar and probably not that interesting. Everything is described in english...

Quite small exhibition and nothing very special, easily seen in less than 30 mins. All signs and descriptions also in English which was good. Atleast in the main exhibition area upstairs numerous guards didn't care about taking photos & perhaps it was allowed? The actual tea room where CPC was founded downstairs near exit had clear signage banning photos though.... More

Birthplace of the Modern China and the Communist Party of China. Before you go in your bags will be searched and if you have any liquids, you will be asked to have a sip. You are not allowed to take photos, if you do you will have a security guard asking you to delete the photo you took. Got in... More

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
